Survival in a Declining Industry: The Case of Baseball Cards
The baseball card industry provides a case study of survival in a declining industry. The case study shows how manufacturers have varied their strategic behavior in response to changes that have occurred within the industry in the last 20 years. This is in stark contrast to most of the existing theoretical literature on behavior in declining industries, which assumes that behavior remains constant throughout the decline phase of an industry.
